Southwestern Pulled Pork Recipe

Southwestern Pulled Pork Recipe

The best way to describe this tender pork recipe is "yummy!" Bottled barbecue sauce, canned green chilies and a few other kitchen staples make preparation fast and easy. We like to wrap the seasoned pork in flour tortillas. -Jill Hartung Colorado Springs, Colorado
